About Me

Meet Aspen
Status: Fostered
Estimated Age: 1-2 Years

Estimated Weight: 31 Pounds

UPDATE – 10 APRIL 2021 (from foster mom): Aspen is a young, energetic and playful pup. She loves playing with our beagle and is super friendly with other dogs. She loves being with her humans, and lots of playtime and walks will be great to get some puppy energy out.

Aspen is learning to walk on the leash and is doing fairly well but will require some patience and training. Aspen enjoys doing laps in our fenced in yard and only seems comfortable doing her “business” off leash in the yard. She would love to find a forever home with a fenced back yard where she can run and play. Because she is still young, I suggest keeping anything that moves (shoes, drink coasters, paper) out of her reach, as they are all toys to her. Aspen is so sweet and loves having her belly rubbed, and I know she will bring great joy to whoever adopts her!

UPDATE – 21 MARCH 2021: Aspen is now in a foster home where we will be able to evaluate how she does as a house dog, So far, she has shown us that she seems to do well with young children! That’s a good start.

NEW – 8 MARCH 2021: This thin, sleek beagle/hound mix is Aspen. She is super sweet, friendly, playful and gets along well with other dogs. She was a stray at the Louisa County Animal Shelter in Virginia, so her history is unknown. She is already vetted and available for fostering or adoption.



Q:  Can you tell me more about a specific dog?  Is s/he good with kids / housetrained / good with cats/ etc?

A:  What we know is in the write up.  Our knowledge about any dog that is not in a foster homes is limited.  Once approved, our adoption coordinators will work with you to match you with the right dog.

Q:  Can I meet a specific dog?

A:  We’re sorry, but you must be an approved adopter to meet our dogs.  Pre-pandemic, dogs could be met at adoption days, but you still had to be approved to adopt from an adoption day.

Q:  How can I adopt a specific dog?

A:  You must submit an adoption application and be approved to adopt.  You can do that under Adopt – you can also learn about the adoption process there..  It will take about two weeks for an adoption coordinator to get in touch with you.  Please keep in mind that dogs that are available now may be adopted in the meantime.  But we are always getting new dogs.   You can see them on our website.

Q:  Can I add another dog to the list on my application?

A:  We don’t hold you to the dogs you listed on your application.  It gives us an idea of what you are looking for.  Plus it will let us know if someone is interested in one of our special needs / hard to place dogs.

Q:  I indicated that I was interested in a specific dog on my application, but I see that s/he has been adopted.  What happened?

A:  We do not hold dogs.  Applicants in the queue before you are being approved and may adopt the dog you are interested in before you are approved.  But we are always getting new dogs in and your adoption coordinator will help you find the perfect match.
